Canning Tomatoes

Harvest your tomato crop all at once to preserve these delicious vegetables!

All tomatoes can be canned, frozen, or otherwise preserved for use later. But some varieties are particularly well suited to preserving, because the plants set their crop all at once, simplifying the harvest process. These varieties, called "determinate," produce their entire crop within just a few weeks, enabling gardeners to prepare sauces, fill canning jars, dry, and freeze their tomatoes. Choose canning tomatoes to extend the goodness of your home-grown crop all the year round.
